When the going gets tough: We buy quality goods
Takes a recession to find what people really value. Despite the lack of apparent disposable income consumers prefer to buy quality brands over cheaper alternatives. According to a recent press release UK consumers have developed a new appreciation for hand made shoes. Brands like Josef Seibel, maker of fine quality leather goods are receiving added attention. The German shoe manufacturer is renowned for using premium quality materials and the highest standard of workmanship to develop a range of comfortable shoes with a unique European styling. Despite operating in Europe since 1886, Josef Seibel launched its Spirit of Nature range of eco-friendly footwear in spring 2009 to increase awareness. Their Nature 17 boot in particular made a huge impact in women’s fashion and the Josef Seibel’s range of smart shoes and casual trainers for men also has proven popular.
